According to newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Dallas-Fort Worth led all metro areas in population growth in 2023. D-FW grew by the size of a large suburb, adding more than 152,000 new residents.

D-FW’s population currently stands at 8.1 million, according to the new estimates, which provide insights into demographic changes across the country in 2023. The Houston metro was close behind D-FW, attracting more than 139,000 people over the same period and raising its population to 7.5 million. Both Dallas and Houston outdistanced third-place Atlanta, which added just over 68,000 new residents last year. The Austin metro added approximately 50,000 people to rank seventh. The San Antonio area was ninth with just over 48,000 new residents.

Texas counties also claimed eight of the top 10 spots for most new residents, with Harris County gaining 53,000 people. Collin County added over 36,000 people and Denton and Tarrant counties attracted over 27,000 new residents each. For the first time, Denton County eclipsed the 1 million mark in population.

In terms of percentage growth, Kaufman and Rockwall counties to the east of Dallas topped the nation among counties with 20,000 or more people. Kaufman County’s growth rate was 7.6%, while Rockwall County’s was 6.5%.
